PA-HCS 8: Aftercare and Follow-Up

The service provider and person receiving services work together to develop an aftercare plan when the need for aftercare is identified.

Interpretation: While the decision to develop an aftercare plan is based on the wishes of the service recipient, unless aftercare is mandated, the agency is expected to be strongly proactive with respect to aftercare planning.
